Adolescents and War

This chapter outlines a set of specific recommendations for future research that stem from the discussions and findings of this volume as a whole. The study of youth and political violence should focus on: (1) studying adolescence as a focal group more explicitly (i.e. both focusing research more precisely on adolescents, distinct from other age groups, and suggesting realms of development of most relevance to be studied); (2) refining the dominant trend in current studies of linking exposure to negative functioning (i.e. identifying key mediators and moderators of the effect of conflict exposure); and (3) expanding the scope of inquiry (i.e. broadening the assessment of experience with political violence and the consideration of the types of youth functioning that should be investigated). A final recommendation is for work that better synthesizes research and policy interests.
